Mint Oreo Truffle Bark


With Valentine’s Day over, I had to start thinking of recipes for the next holiday, St. Patrick’s Day.  When I think of St. Patrick’s Day, I always think of chocolate and mint.  I have no idea really where that association came from.  I am not sure if it is because mint is green and green is the color of St. Patrick’s Day.  I’m not really sure, but since mint I love chocolate and mint and I think they are great anytime, I’m going to go with it.
Have you ever made truffles?  I love truffles, but it is a pain to dip each truffle in chocolate and it takes a lot of time.  I’m lazy, so I haven’t really made truffles in awhile.  Plus my husband hates the mess I make when I make truffles, I somehow get chocolate everyway, it is usually a disaster.  When I saw Inside Bru Crew’s Gingerbread Oreo Truffle Bark, I knew that would be a much easier way to make truffles without all the mess and I knew I had to try it.
I decided to make truffle bark using Mint Oreos.  This Mint Oreo Truffle Bark is so delicious.  I really love the combination of the chocolate with the Mint Oreo Truffle.  I also love how easy this treat is to make.  It looks really decadent and like it took a long time to make, but it can be made quickly.  This would also be a great treat to give as gifts around the holidays. I hope you enjoy this yummy truffle bark!
